It was my birthday this past week – it wasn’t the best I have to say… but then birthdays are always a bit like New Year’s Eve, there is always way too much expectation. Also when you’re in your thirties I think they tend to be a bit downmarket. I had a nice meal on Saturday with 18 close friends – cheese fondue! That was nice. I don’t really feel like I am old – I wonder what age it is that you actually say to yourself – “OK, so this is how old feels”. Maybe 50 – isn’t that mid life crisis age?
Anyway, I think in your 30’s you’ve still got some time to sort out your stuff. If you’re in your 30’s and you have your career sorted out, I mean found exactly what you want to do with your life, you’re ahead of 50% of your peers. I remember working jobs where I’d watch the clock praying for time to somehow go faster. I love my job now and I feel so fortunate – I also love that I spend a lot of my free time working on my true love – my book club. If I get lucky in this lifetime then I’ll trade in my PR hat for full time book club founder, and I’ll be alright with that. So Happy Birthday to me!
